Three-year plan submitted to General Assembly
From Post staff reports
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Transportation Commissioner John Schroer Thursday released the three-year transportation program, which includes the completion of several major strategic corridor projects and the state’s Better Bridges bonding program.
The three year program includes $1.7 billion for highways and bridges to fund more than 152 individual project phases in 59 Tennessee counties. The proposal, which has been presented to the Tennessee General Assembly, includes significant highway and bridge projects in TDOT’s Region Three.
The plan includes widening Interstate 40 from State Route 171 (Mt. Juliet Road) to State Route 109 in Wilson County.

In the wake of devastating storms that ripped through the South last Tuesday night and Wednesday, the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency is continuing to assess the damage across the county, which could bring possible Federal aid.
Watertown took the brunt of the force, with many trees uprooted, power poles seemingly cut in half, and homes damaged along the storm’s path. WEMA Director John Jewell said his crews will be assessing the financial damage in the next few days.
“It could result in some Federal assistance,” Jewell said, adding they aren’t too sure the Federal Emergency Management Agency will provide aid.
